What you'll do

On our Secret Tour of Downtown Las Vegas, you'll see where it all began. We'll travel back in time and walk in the footsteps of the opportunistic businessmen, fabled mobsters, and showbiz legends that helped transform a sleepy railroad town into one of the hottest tourist destinations on the planet. You'll bask in the glow of the world's largest 4K video screen as you hear the tales of "Bugsy" Siegel, Frank Sinatra, Steve Wynn, and many more. Every casino has a story, their glittering neon signs serving as ghostlights into the past. Your guide will share these stories with you, and perhaps a few secrets along the way, on this not-to-be missed journey into the heart of the Sin City.

  • We'll begin at the Downtown Container Park, part of entrepreneur Tony Hseih's $350 million dollar Downtown Project.
  • You'll work up an appetite while passing by the hip restaurants and gastro pubs that line the streets of the Fremont East Entertainment District.
  • At Neonopolis, your guide will point out spots made famous on shows like Pawn Stars and Craziest Restaurants in America.
  • Next, you'll see one of the weirdest wedding chapels in town and hear how an unexpected pair of local icons once tied the knot.
  • Prepare to be dazzled as you enter the Fremont Street Experience, a five block long pedestrian mall featuring the world's largest 4k video screen... sitting above your head!
  • You'll learn how Fremont Street holds many of the city's "firsts" while visiting legendary casinos such as The Fremont, The Golden Nugget, and The Golden Gate.
  • Finally, you'll see where it all began on the corner of Fremont and Main, site of the historic land auction that led to the city's founding.
  • And of course there's our mysterious Secret Spot.

"I absolutely love living in Vegas and having the opportunity to show tourists a part of my city that I think a lot of visitors miss, really makes guiding extremely rewarding"

WHY DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS?

This city is known as America's playground for a reason, with entertainment, casinos, shows, and hedonistic exploits found across the city. But you'll find some of most interesting origins of Vegas' history in the area of Downtown.

Downtown is home to some of the oldest signs, casinos and restaurants in the city, as well as innovative areas like the Fremont Street Experience, reflecting the massive rejuvenation going on in this area and beyond. To truly understand how Vegas became the city it is today, you have to begin in downtown!

About Las Vegas Cultural Tours

We are Las Vegas locals who can't wait to share our unique history with visitors from across the world. On our tours you'll be entertained with stories of the city and its culture, and will leave with a greater understanding of our favourite oasis within the desert. Downtown is sometimes overlooked by tourists with the Strip often being the centre of attention but at Secret Tours we are determined to show you why this is our favourite part of town. Our love affair with Vegas is a new way for you to approach your cultural adventures and expand your knowledge of this truly unique city.

I would like to take your tour but it is already fully booked. Is there a way I can do the tour?

Our tours are often sold out very quickly. If the date you requested is not available, please do not hesitate to email us and we can see if there is anything we can do. We cannot promise but we will try our best to sort something out for you.

Is there a lot of walking?

To join our tour, you must wear comfortable shoes. There will be around 2 hours of walking/standing, but it is not too difficult and is broken up between stops. During the duration of the tour we will walk about a mile and a half. The guide walks at the pace of the tour members, you will never be rushed.

How many people max are on this tour?

We take 12 people maximum. If you are more than 12 people, please do not hesitate to email us and we will try to see if we can accommodate.

I cannot find a way to print the confirmation. Is it OK if I have it on my phone?

You do not have to print your voucher. A confirmation on your phone will be fine!

If I purchase a voucher as a gift, or am given a voucher how long is it valid for?

All of our vouchers expire one year from the date of purchase.

What if it rains or I change my plans?

Unfortunately, the weather is unpredictable in Las Vegas. Rain is rare but the hot sun is not, bring an umbrella and we will try to be more indoors than out, but there are areas that outside is a must. We do not issue refunds as per our terms and conditions. We also inform you that we never cancel a booking even if we have only 2 people! However we do reserve the right to cancel the tour if we feel the weather is extreme, and we cannot run the tour due to this for more info see our Terms and Conditions: https://www.secrettours.com/terms-and-conditions/

Can I pay the tour in cash?

You must book directly on our website. We do not accept cash payments. Our online payment is safe, secured and SSL protected.

Why do we need to pay for booking fee?

The booking fee that you have to pay is up to our ticket provider and we can't change it. All our clients need to pay for it upon booking. The booking fee charged contributes to the cost of the ticketing system to provide an excellent service to our customers.

Foreign Transaction Fees

A few banks have charged their customer an extra fee while booking with us (this isn't the booking fee but another fee added by the bank). We think this is unfair, if this happens let us know by showing us in your bank statement and we will refund this fee as a gesture of good will.
